A.: Some years ago my family and I visited the German city Trier at the River Mosel near Luxemburg. One day as we were parking our car a Catholic priest who passed us at the pavement meant to be friendly and told us that Trier was the frontier town of the Roman Empire at the time and we should go and see the buildings and walls of that era. I asked him if he knew about Hadrian's wall at the border between England and Scotland. He didn't.

Q.: What have been your best concert esperiences?
A.: Overall the Neil Young concert i Horsens on august 28, 2008 has been the greatest with the Rolling Stones concert in 2006 maybe as the runner up. With respect to sound two Everybody's Talking concerts in Aarhus have been the finest. Greatest musician of all has been Billy Cross.
